Have You Suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury?
In most automobile accidents, the brain may be injured by the head striking an object, such as a car windshield or dashboard. The brain can also suffer injury without a direct blow to the head. In these accidents, the brain undergoes a sudden backward and forward motion, or a twisting.
In most car accidents, these types of forces are commonly referred to as “whiplash” type injuries. These types of injuries are called closed head injuries because the injury takes place within the skull.
The Center for Disease Control estimates that approximately 1.5 million people suffer some form of TBI each year in the United States. Of these, approximately 20% are due to motor vehicle injury accidents.
